If you eat at these local restaurants next week, UHD students impacted by the coronavirus will get financial help

Local restaurants are participating in a fundraiser to support University of Houston-Downtown students who have become economically disadvantaged by the coronavirus pandemic.

Through the “Grub for Gators” fundraising initiative, participating Houston-area restaurants will contribute a percentage of its sales to UHD’s Gator Emergency Fund.

The emergency fund was created to assist students with rent and utility bills, groceries, tuition, and other expenses incurred as a result of the pandemic.

“We are grateful that restaurants throughout the Greater Houston Area recognize the challenges faced by our students,” UHD President Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz said. “Their support will not only make a difference for our Gators but will ultimately impact the region. When our students succeed, it’s a win for Houston and for Texas. I thank those businesses who have joined UHD in the ‘Grub for Gators’ initiative.”

Each day during the week of May 18-24 a featured “Grub for Gators” restaurant will contribute to the fund for UHD students.

Customers should inform restaurants that they are supporting “UHD Grub for Gators” when placing their orders.
